IDF Releases Videos from Major Benaya Sarel’s Helmet Cam and Search for Hadar Goldin

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

On Friday, August 1, 2014, IDF Major Benaya Sarel and Sergeant Lial Gidoni were killed in Rafiah, Gaza, by Hamas.

Lt. Hadar Goldin was also killed in that attack and his body stolen by the Hamas terrorists. All this happened a half-hour after a cease-fire had been accepted by all sides. The terrorists came out of a terror tunnel just like those that Hamas are currently rebuilding.

Major Sarel was the commander of the elite Sayeret Givati unit. He was to get married on August 21, 2014, but instead was laid to rest in the old Jewish cemetery in Hebron. 10,000 people attended his funeral.

A year later, the IDF released a segment of the video (courtesy: Rotter.net) from Sarel’s helmet’s Go-Pro camera when he was stationed in the Khirbat Ahza area of Gaza as few days before he was killed, as well as the audio from the search for Goldin (courtesy: NRG).

If the videos don’t appear, give Facebook a minute to load them.

Gaza Dedicates Football Teams to Kidnapping of Killed IDF Soldiers, No FIFA Officials in Sight

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Do you wonder why Israelis are moving politically rightward, and see no prospects for peace on the horizon with their depraved neighbors?

The answer, in part, has to do with the self-inflicted daily decline of humanity of the Gazans.

While terror chief and local PA soccer representative Jibril Rajoub was trying to stick Israel in the dock at FIFA, as usual no one was checking out what’s really going on in the “Palestinian” sports scene.

To help boost attendance at the Sunday game, the Gazans decided to link the game to their only “victories” in the war they initiated last summer.

On Sunday, in the final Gaza Cup soccer game, the two city’s teams, Team Itchiad Shujaiyeh and Team Khadmat Rafiach morbidly represented themselves based on the two dead Israeli soldiers who were kidnapped in their respective cities and whose remains Hamas still hold on to.

Team Itchiad Shujaiyeh is now “represented” by the capture of First Sergeant Oron Shaul who was killed in the APC attack near Shujaiyeh and his dead body then stolen by Hamas.

Team Khadmat Rafiach is “represented” by the capture of Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin who was killed when Hamas attacked IDF troops during a “cease fire.” Hamas then dragged his body into a terror tunnel underneath Rafiach.

The Gazans say the team’s cities are the backbone which allowed for the kidnapping of the bodies of the soldiers.

But hey, not a FIFA official is in sight.

Which team won? They both lost.

Will it ever be possible to rehabilitate the Gazans and restore them to the ranks of humanity?

‘Palestine Cup’ Soccer Finals: Kidnappers and Killers Competing

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Maybe this will convince world leaders, including U.S. President Barack Obama, that Gazans are not victims of Israeli aggression, but are instead victims of the brainwashing by their demonic leadership.

Gaza is holding its year’s soccer finals. That alone should be a clue to those who claim Gaza is an “open air prison” that there is more than just a semblance of normalcy to life in Gaza.

The two teams competing in today’s ‘Palestine Cup’ final (Sunday, June 6), one from Shujaeiya and the other from Rafah.

But what the JewishPress.com learned from Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is that the flyer distributed before the game says this match was between the kidnappers of Oron Shaul and those of Hadar Goldin.

Staff Sgt. Shaul, 20, and Lt. Oron, 23, were Israeli soldiers who were killed in Gaza last summer during Operation Protective Edge. The bodies of both boys continue to be held by Hamas.

“It is difficult to put into words how great the outrage is at Hamas’ bottomless inhumanity,” charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

“While the UN prepares its next denunciation of Israel for defending her citizens last summer from Hamas terrorism and while world leaders demand that Israel agree to a timeline to reach a two state solution, those leaders maintain their silence at the outrages like today’s flyers and allow Hamas to use the remains of dead Israeli soldiers to taunt the grieving Israeli families while teaching young Gazans more hate and inhumanity, Cooper added.

“Instead of granting a Hamas group the legitimacy of an NGO at the UN, world leaders, starting with those gathered at the G7 conference in Germany, should denounce Hamas for their genocidal hatred of Israel and the Jewish people,” Cooper concluded.

Rivlin: No Help in Rebuilding Gaza Until IDF Soldiers’ Bodies Returned

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

President Reuven Rivlin, known for his warm, open manner and willingness to see both sides of a story, this time is not moving a muscle.

Rivlin told United Nations envoy to the Middle East Nicolai Mladenov in their meeting on Wednesday that Israel won’t help rebuild Gaza until Hamas returns the remains of two fallen IDF soldiers whose bodies are still being held hostage.

“Hamas is ready for the time being not to kill Israelis; they are willing to wait,” he acknowledged. “But before there is rebuilding, they have to give us back our sons. We know that their task to get rid of us is still on their agenda. Each side has to build confidence in the other.”

Lt. Hadar Goldin and St. Sgt. Oren Shaul both lost their lives last summer in Gaza while fighting in Operation Protective Edge, the counter terror war launched to silence the rocket fire and destroy the smuggler tunnels aimed at southern Israel.

Both of their bodies were stolen by Gaza terrorists during the heat of battle, and the terror group has refused to return them, thus preventing their grieving families from burying their dead loved ones. It is an especially cruel way to torture a parent, a method used as often as possible by Iranian-sponsored terror groups such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah.

The Goldin family, who met two days ago with the president, requested that Rivlin raise the issue every time he meets with any foreign dignitary and any time the issue of helping Gaza is suggested.

Rivlin also told Mladenov during their meeting that ultimately, Israel would be willing to cooperate with the UN in rebuilding Gaza but noted that few others have kept their promise to do the same. “Everyone is willing to help, but no one is helping,” he observed.

The president also reminded that previous deliveries of concrete and iron intended for construction went badly astray. Literally millions of dollars’ worth of construction supplies intended to rebuild homes and infrastructure for the people of Gaza following previous wars ignited by their terrorist rulers were confiscated and used to build underground bunkers for terror leaders, rockets, mortars and terrorist tunnels.

Part of that network, which Hamas and its allies used to great advantage during last summer’s war, was dismantled by the IDF. But much of it still remains within the enclave and Hamas is intent on rebuilding the rest.

Mladenov responded that it is important to rebuild Gaza as quickly as possible, not only to address the lack of housing, but also to create jobs and opportunities so that Gazans “will be drawn away from radicalism.”

No Promotion for IDF’s Inspiring Givati Commander

Monday, October 6th, 2014

One of the most inspiring IDF army commanders to have led his troops into battle against the terrorist enemy during Operation Protective Edge this summer is being left off the list to be promoted, according to the Hebrew-language NRG news website.

Givati Brigade Commander Col. Ofer Winter was in line to be promoted to the rank of Brigadier General, but it is apparently not to be, according to the report — at least, not this year — due to two controversial incidents that took place during his wartime leadership this summer.

One cause of the holdup is rumored to be a letter of inspiration he wrote to the men under his command on July 9, just prior to entering Gaza.

The other is allegedly his involvement with the implementation of the Hannibal protocol in Rafah in response to the murder-abduction of Lt. Hadar Goldin by Hamas terrorists during a supposed cease-fire in Gaza.

Hamas is still holding the body parts of Goldin’s corpse it captured during the attack, for some ghoulish ransom, such as the exchange of who knows how many live Palestinian Authority terrorist prisoners held in Israeli jails. Or perhaps in trade for a huge number of dead Muslim terrorist bodies. After the Second Lebanon War, Hezbollah returned the bodies of two kidnapped and murdered IDF reservists to Israel in exchange for both.

The letter of inspiration Winter wrote for his soldiers during Operation Protective Edge this past summer contained Biblical references, making it a controversial item for secularist groups but one that was lauded by others.

Deputy Religious Services Minister Eli Ben-Dahan praised the commander for the letter of encouragement sent to soldiers under his command. Winter wrote of their ‘great merit’ to be at the forefront of the battle against “the terrorist enemy that dares to curse, blaspheme and scorn the God of Israel.”

Summing up his trust in his men, his commanders and in his Creator, the Givati Brigade commander wrote, “In the name of the fighters of the IDF and in particular the Brigade and the commanders, may the verse be fulfilled for us that ‘the Lord your God goes with you to fight for you with your enemies to save you,’ and we will say ‘Amen.’ Together – and only together – we will win.”

Winter’s letter stirred and inspired many by its deep and abiding faith but was slammed by at least two secularist groups who insisted Israel can not mix religion with military affairs.

Nevertheless, the vast majority of lawmakers spoke out in support of the commander, saying his call for Divine aid in time of battle against an implacable enemy was entirely appropriate.

As far as his implementation of the Hannibal protocol, that issue is being considered separately along with all other such matters by the IDF investigating committee.

Hamas Turns Down Request for Information on KIA Bodies

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

IDF radio reported on Tuesday evening that Israel requested information from Hamas about the bodies of IDF soldiers, Lt. Hadar Goldin and Staff Sgt. Oron Shaul, who were killed in action in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge. Hamas stole their dead bodies.

Israel also raised the subject of an exchange with Hamas, to return the bodies back to Israel for proper burial.

Hamas rejected the Israeli request, adding they won’t even supply information at this time.

A senior Hamas spokesman said, “Israel is used to getting things for free, and Israel needs to learn that we won’t work that way.”

In the Gilad Schalit deal, Hamas valued the life of 1 kidnapped IDF soldier as being equivalent to the lives of 1027 Arab terrorists.

Hamas obviously feels that 1 Israeli soldier is worth far more than 1027 Arab terrorists, which is why they believe Gilad Schalit was released for free.

We can’t argue with their valuations.

Ya’alon Promises to Bring Soldier’s Body Home from Hamas

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Defense Minister Moshe ‘Boogie’ Ya’alon put an end to conflicting media reports and confirmed Sunday night that Hamas is holding the body – or parts of the body – of IDF soldier Oron Shaul.

A tweet from a Ha’aretz journalist quoted Ya’alon as saying that Shaul’s body was being held by Hamas in Gaza. A similar report in Egyptian media claimed Israel had negotiated with Hamas for the return of body parts belonging to Shaul, and for fallen IDF soldier Hadar Goldin, in exchange for releasing Hamas terrorists captured by the IDF during Operation Protective Edge. Likewise, Israel’s Channel 2 television reported similar negotiations, saying that Israel offered to trade eight bodies and 15 Hamas captives in exchange for the IDF body parts.

By then, Israeli officials were trying to douse the fire, and subsequently were quoted as denying the reports. Instead, they warned they were being used as psychological warfare to manipulate the grief of the Israeli public over the soldiers’ deaths.

But Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon put an end to the media speculation and delivered the sad news in his typical forthright style.

Ya’alon told journalists late Sunday evening that Israel is attempting to work through diplomatic channels to retrieve Shaul’s body, which he had already verified was being held by Hamas. He had shared that painful news in a visit with the soldier’s family, and promised them that Israel will bring him back.

“We are committed to bringing Oron home to be laid to rest here in Israel,” Ya’alon reportedly told the family. “We will not rest until this is done, and we are dealing with the issue. We will keep you posted on every development and my door will always be open to you for any question you might have.”

Shaul was killed together with six other soldiers when his armored personnel carrier was blown up by an anti-tank missile in a heavy firefight in the Shejaiyya section of Gaza City. During that battle, other IDF soldiers were able to recover the bodies of his six comrades but were unable to find the body of Oron Shaul. Initially it was believed that Shaul was kidnapped alive, but closer investigation of the site revealed enough evidence for the IDF Chief Military Rabbi to conclude the soldier had fallen in combat.

Goldin, a Givati officer, was killed when a suicide bomber emerged from a tunnel nearby and detonated his explosives belt right next to his unit, killing him and two other soldiers. Other terrorists then dragged parts of Goldin’s body into a tunnel, according to an exclusive report posted on Breitbart News. Goldin’s men chased the terrorists but didn’t catch them. They did, however find some of Goldin’s personal items – enough to bring back for a determination of his death as well.

May God and the IDF avenge their blood.
